Melted vacuum line

I just bought a 1991 Ford F150. and am slowly fixing the things that ail it. One is a pink vacuum line that has melted through. When I replace the line, where do I route it to keep it from melting again?

Re: Melted vacuum line

Not to be a smart ass, but away from the heat. If you're replacing the line with generic vacuum hose, you can always re-rout the line to a safer location. Generally, the hoses are routed through a safe path, might want to look into whether the line shifted or is something going wrong and causing excessive heat to be generated in that location.

Don't worry about it. I'm a complete newbie to doing anything mechanical. It's turning out to be quite fun. This pickup was apparently attended to by a very shady "mechanic" before I bought it two weeks ago. Thanks for the suggestion.

Hi islandcat. I'm moving this post to the truck section located here. This section is for forum functionality issues or suggestions.

Thanks, James
